Cheeky Sword God - Chapter 9
“He want benefits?”
Luo Kun was so angry that his eyes became murderous, and he sneered.
“How dare he ask me for benefits?”
These men stood in an awkward situation. Facing Luo Kun’s anger, they dared not raise their heads.
If they had a choice, they would rather swallow a bitter pill than come to see Luo Kun. However, this matter was too serious to hide it from Luo Kun.
“Did you also say that he took all the gold taels and completely robbed all your money?” A young man beside Luo Kun suddenly interjected.
“Yes!” These men felt humiliated when this matter had been mentioned.
“It’s hard for an insignificant figure like you to achieve great things by acting like that.” Shaking his head, the young man turned to Luo Kun and said, “Brother Luo, I think it’s better to go meet him. Since he dares to ask for benefits, he must be able to bring out some values worth seeing.”
“All right, after all, he is just a disciple of a small school. To kill him or not, we can make the choice at any time.”
With a nod, Luo Kun didn’t care too much. His purpose was to take the Shadow, and money held no value in his eyes.
“You guys go and bring him over. If you do your job well, your past mistakes will be overlooked, and instead you will be rewarded. But if you fail again… you know the consequences.” The young man waved his hand, and ordered.
After these men left, Luo Kun asked the young man, “Deng Mao, how’d the arrangements go?”
“The disciples who are watching over the Sword Pavilion have been bought over by us, but we still need to proceed with caution. After all, the help provided by these disciples is limited.” The young man shook his head and continued, “We only have three days left until Zhou Yuanting’s burial, our time is limited.”
“It doesn’t matter either way. The general situation here is under our control. With the current state of the Shadow Sword Villa, they won’t be able to retaliate.”
“It is rumored that Zhou Yuanting and Kun Lun’s Immortal Changchun had some friendship with each other. Shadow Sword Villa had sent their disciples to invite Immortal Changchun. If Immortal Changchun arrives here in time, I’m afraid we have to cancel our plans.”
Luo Kun waved his hands to dismiss the young man.
“Brother Deng, you worry too much. I visited Kun Lun with our master recently. Immortal Changchun went into seclusion a year ago. Now that Zhou Yuanting is dead, other people in Shadow Sword Villa are not fast enough to alarm the secluded Immortal Changchun.”
Deng Mao felt more assured after hearing this.
“If that is the case, then everything is under our control.”
“By the way, remember to tell them that Miss Zhou needs to be caught alive.”
Luo Kun opened his mouth and ordered. When speaking of Zhou Boyan, Luo Kun’s eyes became full of lust.
Looking at the dripping sweat on Wu Chi’s forehead, Zhou Boyan hesitated for a moment, and handed her handkerchief to him.
In fact, Zhou Boyan was very clear that Wu Chi was the only one capable of reversing the sword intent. It was not that she didn’t want to help but her talent compared with Wu Chi’s talent in the sword means that she couldn’t provide much help in any way.
Putting his sword back into its sheath, Wu Chi wiped his sweat with her handkerchief and said, “This sword technique is really peculiar. After so many days, we had only comprehended less than three-tenths of this sword technique, and now the difficulty is increasing day by day.”
“This is already good.” Shaking her head, Zhou Boyan responded.
She knew better than Wu Chi on how hard it was to reverse the sword intent. To be honest, she initially didn’t believe that Wu Chi would be able to do it.
But moving at this pace, the reversal of the sword intent might be possible.
“Still, we don’t have enough time…” With a bitter smile, Wu Chi weakly spoke.
“…Yes, there’s no time left.” Mentioning this matter, Zhou Boyan’s eyes became gloomy. There were only three days left until the funeral, and at that time, a huge storm would crash over at Shadow Sword Villa.
Wu Chi became silent, and finally opened his mouth to ask, “Miss Zhou, have you ever thought about giving up the divine sword?”
The Shadow was undeniably powerful, but it was also the cause of this disaster.
“No.” Biting her lips, Zhou Boyan explained, “When my father had died, the Shadow Sword Villa was thrown into the surging turbulence. If I were to lose the Shadow, I’m afraid that the Shadow Sword Villa will disappear along with the Shadow.”
“Shadow Sword Villa is my father’s lifelong effort, I can’t watch this place get destroyed.”
Opening his mouth but nothing came out, Wu Chi grew silent.
Although he wanted to say that even if she were to stay, all her attempts would still be in vain, but it was a cruel thing to say that to her.
“Thank you for coming back today.” Looking at Wu Chi, Zhou Boyan softly spoke.
“But it’s useless. All you can accomplish from staying is to put your own life on the line. You should go back.”
“Hey, Little Girl, will you die if you don’t talk too much? How can you speak to me like this?” Rolling his eyes, Wu Chi continued, “You should care more about yourself.”
“I am attached to the Shadow Sword Villa, but you’re different.” Zhou Boyan continued, “If this trouble is resolved, I’ll go visit you at Iron Sword Group later.”
After a moment’s silence, Wu Chi sighed.
“Anyway, I’ll wait until after the funeral of your father. If I can’t save you and the Shadow Sword Villa, I won’t stay and die foolishly.”
“Thank you.” Zhou Boyan was aware of his situation clearly, and knew how much risk Wu Chi would have to bear by staying at the Shadow Sword Villa.
“Well, don’t be so pessimistic. Maybe, a miracle will happen?”
After wiping his sweat, Wu Chi gave the handkerchief back to Zhou Boyan, and joked, “Maybe, I will have an epiphany during my sleep tonight and fully comprehend the Shadow’s sword intent? Then you can gain the Shadow’s recognition and kill all the enemies?”
“Dream on!” With a grunt, Zhou Boyan didn’t want to take the handkerchief back at all.
“Take it away, it stinks. I don’t want it back.”
“Really? All right, I’ll take it back and use it to wipe the table as a rag.”
Taking back the handkerchief, Wu Chi turned around and left, but his heart felt heavy.
You still want to stay? This silly girl is really pissing me off!
After leaving the inner courtyard, these men who had just been taught lessons by Wu Chi had been waiting for him.
“Hm, what’s the matter? Are you guys not convinced yet? Do you want me to teach you a lesson again?”
His eyebrows slightly raised, Wu Chi smiled and looked at these men amusingly.
Now that they had Luo Kun’s full support. They seemed unafraid of Wu Chi. The moment they came, they had regained their confidence and wanted to pay Wu Chi back by intimidating him. But when they had met Wu Chi again, their confidence was blown away by a few words of Wu Chi..
“Young Master Wu, Boss Luo wants to see you.”
“Wow, just because he said that he wanted to see me, I have to be there? I’m sleepy, I’ll talk about it tomorrow.” Rolling his eyes lazily, Wu Chi answered back.
“…” This answer was totally unexpected.
They looked at Wu Chi in disbelief.
“It’s Young Master Luo! Young Master Luo wants to meet you.”
“I heard that. You don’t have to repeat it several times.”
Wu Chi’s face had a natural expression, “He wants to meet me, but I don’t want to meet him. Also, I’m very sleepy now, I tend to say wrong things when I get sleepy, what if I accidentally offend Young Master Luo?”
“…” If they could chop Wu Chi up, he would already become thousands of pieces, but these people still have to bow down their head and follow Deng Mao’s orders.
Deng Mao’s orders were very clear.
If they can’t bring Wu Chi back today and make Luo Kun angry, let alone Wu Chi, the first one to receive Luo Kun’s anger would be them.
“Young Master Wu, please! We really can’t endure Young Master Luo’s torment.”
These men were practically in tears, and repeatedly pulled Wu Chi’s clothes.
“Hey, don’t pull my clothes. Do you want to pay for the damage done to my clothes?”
These men immediately became speechless.
Son of a bitch! The money you had robbed from us was plenty to pay for hundreds of similar clothes.
“Young Master Wu, please help us! If you don’t go, we only have to die here.”
“Okay, okay, stop pulling, I will go with you!” Seeing the persistence of these men, wiping their tears and sticking their runny noses on his clothes, Wu Chi immediately changed his mind.
Following these several people, he soon stepped into Luo Kun’s courtyard. And as soon as Luo Kun came into his sight, Wu Chi ran over hastily, shaking off these men who were clinging to him.
“Ah, Brother Luo, if you want to meet me, you could’ve asked someone to pass on a message to me. As soon as I get wind of the news, I will immediately come to you.”
He threw down these men and ran to Luo Kun’s side. Wu Chi’s face looked like he was surprised to see Luo Kun.
Seeing Wu Chi’s shameless appearance, those people suddenly cursed in their heart. If their gaze could kill, then Wu Chi would already have died hundreds of times under their gaze.
Even Luo Kun was shocked by Wu Chi, and the threats he had prepared against Wu Chi became useless.
This was not what he had prepared for.
Shouldn’t he be fearless? How did he turn out to be such a dog in a blink of an eye?
With a cough, Luo Kun stabilized his thoughts and waved for his men to go away. Then he opened his mouth and said, “Brother Wu is the disciple of Iron Sword Group, you don’t have to be that respectful towards me.”
“Come on, the status of a disciple of the Iron Sword Group can only be shown off in front of outsiders. This status is a joke in front of you.” Shaking his head foolishly, Wu Chi continued with a grin, “Brother Luo, I came here to eat and drink for free. If you have anything you want, you can tell me.”
Wu Chi’s shamelessness even made Luo Kun, who was accustomed to flattery from others, unable to listen to him any more, and changed the subject.
“I heard that you are very close to Miss Zhou recently?”
“Of course, she gave me lots of benefits!” Waving his hands, Wu Chi casually continued, “Even though Zhou Yuanting had died, the Shadow Sword Villa is still a huge school with lots of treasures and medicines. It’s good to please Miss Zhou as she can give me these things easily.”
While speaking, Wu Chi took out the tempering elixir that Zhou Boyan had sent to him a few days ago and said, “Look, this is what that girl gave me two days ago. I drank some of this elixir, and the effects were marvelous.”
